BGB Podcast #230: Worth the Weight

While we tend to enjoy games across the whole spectrum, there’s something particular about sinking your teeth into a really heavy game. But it’s not always an easy prospect; conditions have to be just right. So what makes a heavy game worth it? Before things get heavy, we talk about Barony, Bausack, Whitehall Mystery, and Dead Reckoning.
